Everything God has created, receives to give. Carbon dioxide is pulled from the air and with the help of the sun is converted into glucose, on the leaf’s surface. Oxygen, the major bi-product of this process, is released back into the air for the benefit of animals and humans. Plants receive carbon dioxide to give oxygen. So, what is then a true sign of thankfulness? Unselfishness. All created things ask and receive to give, let’s keep the theme of our prayers and lives in line with the rest of creation.
